Just mounted vortex venom to my victory 22 with provided picatiny. Have maxed out elevation and still 2 inches low at 15 yds. Any ideas

If you are low at 15 yds, I would say that something is wrong with the mount. I would take it all apart and start over. Maybe even reverse the mount and try again. Something is hosed up for sure.

Thanks, did that and moved scope up 1 slot on mount(was all the way back) and put 1 layer of electricians tape at back and of scope between base of scope and the rectangular scope plate. Problem solved, even dropped elevation 4 clicks. I'm a rabbit hunter, not target shooter. Hopefully will work long term.

Good luck with that. My son had an issue with a Bushnell installed by Cabella’s. They over torqued the mounts and bent the tube on the scope. Bushnell WOULD NOT replace it in warranty, the overed a discount on another scope.

He replaced it with it with a Vortex Diamondback and bought more Vortex Scopes. He also used a FAT screwdriver system for correct torque.

The problem was eliminated.

Aluminum foil makes a better, longer-lasting shim than electric tape.

Sounds to me like you are turning the elevation knob the wrong way.
